Apartment proposal at Hughes Lane dropped


The developer that proposed re-zoning the two-story offices on Hughes Lane at LBJ has dropped the contract in the face of neighborhood opposition.

They have no plans to pursue it at this time.


However, the property could attract further interest at some point.  The 1980s office buildings along LBJ are attractive for re-development, and our part of town is centrally located, which is very appealing for residential.

The three vacant 2-story office buildings next to the former Brinker site, on LBJ near Hillcrest, are currently being marketed as a potential apartment site.

Dozens of homes on several streets were damaged, and some destroyed, but thankfully, no one was killed.

Hillcrest Forest members donate $6,000 to 5 STAR ENP Police Patrol to help protect our neighborhood.

After the tornado, the damaged homes became a magnet for thieves.

70 Hillcrest Forest residents contributed over $6,000 to fund extra patrols in the tornado-damaged area.  Our association added another $2,500, for a total of $8,500..

This funded 13 weeks of additional private police patrols.  You can see the names of the generous contributors here.

Members fund a rest area on the Northaven Trail

120 of our members collectively donated over $10,000 to fund a beautiful 3-bench seating area on the Northaven Trail, the hike & bike park that runs through our neighborhood.

Our association donated an additional $2,500 to the Trail for general improvements. 

The Northaven Trail is forever, and those 3 massive stone benches will be there for a very long time.
